    At a little hair salon owned by a Christian Arab in Haifa, Israel, the director installs a mini film-set over the washing basin. As she washes their hair, she converses candidly with the salon’s clients, who are Arab and Jews, on topics ranging from politics to love. What emerges from these conversations is an honest and nuanced portrayal of contemporary Israel.
